Life in today’s day and age can be a drag. Sticking to the same routine day in and day out can definitely be tough and monotonous. Everyone has different ways of coping with this. Some decide to go on vacation to catch a break from their mundane everyday rituals, while others just end up becoming desensitized to a great extent. Whatever way you choose to deal with it, life just keeps hitting back in one way or another!
Sometimes complying with social norms can get exhausting too! When things have to be done in a specific way and you are constantly expected to smile and wave, it can be a form of emotional labor that just doesn’t sit well with some folks! In cases like these, people either end up flipping a switch and doing a complete 180 (like yelling at their boss) or just end up completely detached and not giving an absolute heck about what goes on. Whichever one you are, we’re sure you’ll be able to relate to these posts in some way.
Whatever the case, every human has a breaking point that is exhibited in a variety of ways. Whether you’ve experienced this or not, we’re sure you’ve come close for sure! You’ll see what we mean in a minute so let’s start scrolling!

9. Customers can be so rude
10. Can’t deny he was smart
These posts have us laughing, shocked, and indignant all the same time! Anyone who’s ever worked in a service industry knows the struggles of annoying customers and people who think they are just entitled to everything. They sometimes forget that they too are dealing with real humans with emotional capacity.
These people have dealt with these situations in some hilarious ways though and even though they might seem surprising at first, when you’re done then you’re truly done. Whether it’s at the office, or at home, these people know how to put others in their place and say no when they’ve reached their limit. We don’t recommend this behavior but we can definitely sympathize!

Now that we’ve reached the end, I’m sure we can agree that breaking points can be surprising, even for us. We might not know how we’ll end up reacting when our capacity has been well and truly exhausted. Respecting everyone’s boundary is so important and we just want to go up to some of these people and just put a hand on their shoulder and ask: “Hey, are you okay? Wanna talk about it?” Let’s cut each other some slack and make life a little easier shall we? So let us know in the comments which post was the funniest and whether you’ve ever come close to a situation such as this. We know we have!
